Children of the Seventh Fire--An Ancient Prophecy for Modern Times is a fully illustrated children's book for use by teachers, mentors, parents, outreach educators, and others interested in teaching the importance of environmental conservation, protection, and sustainability. Using oral traditions from the indigenous people of eastern North America, namely the Anishinabe (also known as the ?First? or ?Original Peoples?), Hart has woven the Prophecy of the Seventh Fire into a children?s story which includes student characters of Native American and non-Native American cultures as they learn this prophecy from an Ojibwe elder, named Kinoo. Each era of this seven-phase prophecy is explained to the characters by Kinoo. The phases of the prophecy?known as ?fires??begins with the migration of the Anishinabe people from the Atlantic coast toward the western Great Lakes region and continues into the time of the Seventh Fire. Kinoo explains that we are now in the era of the seventh fire, and people of all races must learn to make the right choices to preserve our planet by reflecting on the destructive history of the past.

From the Author

Several years ago, Lisa became interested in indigenous wisdom and the potential contribution that such information could make to the basic education of children in general. Children of the Seventh Fire is one result of her commitment to share the knowledge and legacy of traditional lifeways, in this case some of the wisdom of the Anishinabe (Algonquin Native Americans), with children ? and adults ? early in the 21st Century.
